SPARTANS
(DBA II/5a)

The figures are exclusively Xyston, comprised of hoplites in metal cuirass, linen armor and unarmored in proportions of 1-2-2. A Spartan army would normally include allies and mercenary elements, but I elected to depict it entirely as a Spartan force. I've also added a horde element so that I can cheat and morph this as an Early Spartan (I/52b) army despite the non-period headgear. One of the fun bits was adding hamippoi to the Spartan cavalry. The army was painted by David Kuijt and features Veni Vidi Vici shield transfers. I'm afraid the pictures do not do full justice to his work, but at least it will give you a sense as I master the art of the digital camera.
